MBSC Club Heat One

With nearly as many EFYC as MBSC boats hitting the water we had 10 enthusiastic starters in what looked like a nice 8 knot SWer. Butch, Black Sun, The Dogs, Gordo and Swanny look the goods on the first few legs with the rest sailing around in circles getting further behind as the breeze started to die and do circles. Eventually Butch enforced the 4.30 rule and sailed for bar, a few held out hope of an easterly returning however the smell of beer was to great and the stragglers headed for the bar just in time to avoid a total glass off.
Next Sunday is the opening of PFSYC, I hope to have the courses soon and will pass them on. The forecast is a little crazy at this stage hopefully it will improve as the week progresses. I will post an alternative course on the here if the forecast stays in the NW. Windward leeward format. I see no point in playing the soldiers game.

SIs Here

Butch is showing good form early in the season and the rest of us look like a rabble. So much show Ash Gay Boy Gabrielson is making guest appearance so expect some verbal abuse both on and off shore.
